Boots: A story that began on the beaches of California.
The year was 1978, on the beaches in California, a surf-loving Australian decided to market animal hide boots, initially designed to protect his feet from the cold after a session riding the waves. He promptly launched the UGG Australia brand and subsequently targeted the American surfing community. In the 1980's, the model became an absolute must-have, a symbol of Californian cool, available in all the surf shops along the American coast. In the 2000's, the brand decided to change tack to become less sportswear-oriented and extended its range with more high-end accessories and footwear.
For a few years now, the brand has been straying off the beaten track and proposing more original collections by way of special collaborations, including one with Jimmy Choo and another with Swarovski. In 2013, it launched a line of homewear as well as a range of homeware. Since its beginnings, the brand has invited itself into a good many celebrities' wardrobes, which definitely helped raise the popularity of the must-have boots, designed to keep us "warm in winter and cool in summer".
